360-Degree Evaluation

360-Degree Evaluation

In a 360 degree performance appraisal system, an employee’s performance is evaluated by all the people he/she interacts with at the organization. This includes peers, supervisors, subordinates, customers, clients and the secretary (where one interacts directly with a secretary). This style is expected to bring a pool of results that can work to produce an objective average assessment.

However, 360-degree method is time consuming and difficult to implement. It is difficult to get all the parties around each employee to do an appraisal of an employee. The system has also a potential to create enmity within employees than foster the much wanted team spirit. Employees who are scored low tend to feel short changed and would seek revenge. Once there s discord at the workplace, production will be affected, morale goes low and the whole industrial relations are frustrated.
